Cardio-cerebro vascular diseases and Thrombophilia


Certain individuals may have an abnormal predisposition to venous or arterial thrombosis and either experience thromboembolic events relatively early in life or suffer recurring events.

The International Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis defined thrombophilia as an unusual tendency toward thrombosis.

Frequently features include (1) early age of onset; (2) recurrent episodes; (3) family history; (4) circulatory problems and (5) severity outcomes


Why to perform a genetic test for thrombophilia?


People with or hereditary thrombophilia are at higher risk of developing blood clots due to genetic alterations in proteins involved in the blood homeostasis.  The genetic alteration results in higher predisposition of spontaneous blood clot.

These clots can cause the obstruction of veins or arteries and lead to pulmonary embolism, stroke, thrombophlebitis or acute myocardial infarction.
